Kidney bean base ingredients


What To Do:

Step 1: In a medium fry pan, heat up the olive oil and add the onion and garlic and cook for a few minutes, until the onion is soft and translucent.

Step 2: Add the drained kidney beans, tomato paste, chilli and oregano and stir.

Step 3: Using a fork, press down onto the kidney beans to squash them, whilst stirring with the fork at the same time. By the time you have finished, the mixture should be heated all the way through and resemble a paste.
